Welcome to Tech It Out! a new game show powered by AMT and IMTS
Tech It Out! is a new, two-part learning experience to generate awareness of the key technologies that are transforming U.S. manufacturing today and defining the workforce skills of tomorrow:
- 5 Axis Machining
- Additive Manufacturing
- Augmented Reality (AR)
- Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning
- Automation with a focus on Robotics
- Digital Twin
- Generative Design
Tech It Out! debuted as a trivia-style game show on the IMTS Network with two teams going head-to-head to show off their knowledge of the key technologies and earn the most points. The teams included Lindsey Longstreth, Industrial Technology Teacher at West Leyden High School in Illinois and Ted Rozier, Director of Engineering at Festo competing against Billy McFarland, Advanced Manufacturing Program Coordinator, Wilbur Wright College, Humboldt Park, Chicago (one of the Chicago City Colleges) and Melanie Lang, Co-Founder and CEO, FormAlloy. The teams competed for cash prizes totaling nearly $5,000 with funding provided through Miles for Manufacturing.Watch All 5 Episodes of Tech It Out!

Check back for a link to this series of self-paced trivia games that students can play whether learning in the classroom or from home. Each key transformative technology has its own ten-question game where the object is not to “pass the test,” but to learn about the future of manufacturing technology and have fun doing it!
